Federico Bolelli

Federico Bolelli is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy, where he works under the supervision of Prof. Costantino Grana within the AImagelab research group.

From the same University, he received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees cum laude in Computer Engineering at the Department of Engineering "Enzo Ferrari" and the PhD degree in ICT from the International Doctorate School.

 

His research interests include image processing, algorithms optimization, medical imaging and historical document analysis. Among his research topics, he has worked on the optimization of binary image processing algorithms, modelling innovative approaches that significantly improve the performance on both CPU and GPU architectures. He has also worked on skin lesion segmentation and classification for melanoma skin cancer detection and handwritten text recognition of historical documents.

Since 2019, he is working at the DeepHealth H2020 European Project where, among others, he is responsible for the developing of the European Computer Vision Library (ECVL).

He is a member of IEEE and CVPL, the Italian Association for Computer Vision, Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning.
